So my boyfriend recently inheirted his mother’s old engagement ring. He’s wanting me to pick a style that I like to go along with it, he told me it was a 1/2 carat diamond. But to me it looks larger..
Any expertise out there to help me out?

It looks about a half carat to me. Get it appraised, that’s the only way to know for sure.

If you are going to have it reset, you may as well just take it in to a jeweler and ask them! Enjoy the ring shopping!

Looks around like half a carat to me. It could be half a carat but more too heavy and not as deep, so it appears bigger up top. Get a jeweller to check it out for sure.

half carat seems accurate! How exciting!!

I’d say it’s .40-.50 carat.

If you have calipers, you can measure it which would give you something more absolute to compare. To me it looks a little less than a carat. But impossible to tell from pictures.

It’s very difficult to trell from pictures. What size finger is it on? Looks to me like it could b almost a carat. If u have a ruler with millimeters one carat is approx 6.5 mm . Hth

I thought a half carat before I read any comments.

Looks about .5 something. Doesn’t really matter for a reset though. What you’ll need to be concerned with is the diameter (XYZ mm) so you can find a setting that fits.

I don’t know what size it is, but it’s very pretty! I love it as it is in the classic setting, too. Lucky you!

Looks like a half-carat to me! Perfect size. <3

I think it definitely looks bigger than 1/2. Plus when you put into perspective that it is on a pinky finger of a man, yet takes up a decent portion of it I’d say it could be around 1 ct

Am I crazy? I think it definitely looks bigger than a half carat, considering it takes up about a third of your boyfriend’s pinky finger. I’d say closer to .6-.7, but I am pretty ignorant of these things so who knows. It’s lovely though!

I think it’s a bit bigger than that but there is no easy way to tell, especially not knowing you’re boyfriend’s finger size. Pretty diamond! Looks just like my heirloom ring! Get it appraised–you’ll want to do that anyway so you can add it to your insurance.
